Giuliani said yesterday, "no matter how you try to blame it on the president, the actual responsibility for it really would be for the troops that were there."
That statement W is going to inflame lots fo military personal families that are here in the US while their loves ones are fighting bu# war, when my husband heard that statement, he a retired marine and veteran of first gulf war could not believe it, he said for the first time that, thet statement is the worst thing to say when at the beginning of the invasion all bu# wanted was to protect the oil fields in Iraq, the protection of the people and the protection of the ammo scattered all over the city was not priority, and now they one to blame the military, for the decisions of others?
My husband said, "the troops only take orders and when they are ordered to do a mission they do it." Guarding the areas where the explosives were was not priority at the time.
The statement that stupid man did is going to make more damage than people think to the families of military personnel in Iraq.
